The post-holiday blues antidote


To paraphrase the poet*, January is the cruellest month. After the family members and friends depart, after the delicious foods are consumed, after the screeching of car tyres replaces the sound of the crashing waves, you are left facing your in-box overflown with emails. No wonder that the return to the everyday routine feels like a bit of a let-down.

Here are several tips on how to improve your mood in the post-holiday period:

Tip #1: Cook up something sweet. Invite the remaining friends for a weekend of cooking. The bidorbuy chocolates and sweets section has several recipe books in the eBook or DVD format.

Tip #2: Get ‘em ready made. If the very thought of kneading the dough makes your arms go weak with exhaustion, order these delicious-looking home-made cookies. A word of warning: these are for Jo’burgers only!

Tip #3: Get ‘em ready-made sequel. And before the wrath of all non-Jo’burgers is unleashed, we hasten to add that this delectable chocolate can be enjoyed nation-wide.

Tip #4: Just browse A glance at all the wonderful items on sale at wonderfully low prices can act as an instant pick-me-up!
